Fairies in the Garden

You've hung up your fairy door and invited in the wee folk. What next? Planting a fairy garden that both you and the fairies can enjoy would be perfect. Fairy gardens can be indoors or outdoors, big or small, extravagant or simple. There are just so many things you can do it is hard for me not to ramble on and make the worlds longest blog post! I'll try to contain myself, every Wednesday I'll have Fairy Garden tips, hints, ideas and more. 
 So first thing you'll want to do is decide what space you want to use for the garden. Fairies are shy and they hate loud noises. You do not need a large area. If you are thinking indoors is best for you choose as peaceful a spot as you can find, where you sit and read, a sun room or balcony or simply the quiet corner of a room.

If an outside fairy garden works best for you, then try somewhere off the beaten path. Somewhere away from the constant traffic of kids and pets (think Godzilla lumbering through your town). Fairies love old Oak trees. They have several uses for the acorns - hats, bowls, planters, etc. Oak trees are so magical that they may sometimes already have fairies living in them! If you are lucky enough to have an Oak tree in your yard
planting your garden nearby will most likely prove a success. Finally, consider the animals in your yard, fairies are fiercely protective of nature and love and care for the plants and animals.
Whether it be indoors or out try to choose somewhere that gets a bit of sunlight and moonlight.
Starting a fairy garden will create a truly magical and peaceful place for all!

Next week I'll talk about what plants attract the faeries!!!
